You may have noticed that the #HIT100 didn’t kickoff on the 4th of July as it had in the past few years and where it had become a tradition, in some way.
Most people don’t tweet on the weekends so starting it on a Saturday didn’t make sense.
I just noticed that #HIT99 has spawn as an alternative.
#HIT100 has always been part of the public domain. So is there a need for another competing hashtag? I don’t think so.
Anyways, if it were up to me, we should have a hashtag like #HIT1000 OR #HIT10000, because our community has grown so much that 100 is too small anymore. And are we going to subtract 1 more?
Today, in the year 2015, we have a wonderful community of thousands of members. Do you remember when we started and we were just a few? They even described us as an “echo chamber”.
Please bring your enthusiasm to this year’s #HIT100 as you have the past several years.
The rules are the same as in 2014. You will find these at the end of this post.
The only ask I have for 2015 is that at least 3 bloggers volunteer to both calculate and post the results. Media outlets are also welcome to participate.
#HIT100 is open and community friendly.
This year I am working on a very large project in #HealthIT and I don’t have the spare time to run #HIT100. Actually, I’ve never had spare time so it’s always been a sacrifice and a pleasure at the same time.
Here are the rules of #HIT100:
1. The nomination is a simple tweet that should be written as follows: “I nominate @tweet_handle to the #HIT100 list. #HealthIT #HITsm” (omit the quotes in the tweet),
2. Only one twitter handle may be nominated in one tweet,
3. Simple RTs will be counted but “thank you” or “TY” RTs will not nor will RTs of RTs, so keep it simple,
4. The first round will be for the first top 250 nominees and this round will last 7 days or until the stream slows down,
5. From the first round the top 100 nominees will be listed on the #HIT100 list,
6. The second round will be executed the same way but only those that showed up in the #HIT100 list can be nominated,
7. The second round count will narrow down to the first 5 of the #HIT100 list. These 5 are this years champs!,
8. Last but not least, you must have lots of fun!
